The Bears will have one very long road trip next season. The NFL on Monday assigned them to play a game in London, England.

That will be their road game against the Raiders. The date and time of the game will be released later this spring when the full schedules come out.

The Bears have played in Londeon twice before. They played a preseason game there in 1986 against the Cowboys. They played a regular season game in 2011 against the Buccaneers. The Bears won both of those games.

The Bears have played one other game outside the United States. That was in 2010 when they played the Bills in Toronto.
